"Always go for the better pun."Punintended is a gag-a-day comic, with recurring characters. It is essentially a Stick Figure Comic ("Marshmallow" style characters, to be precise). As described by the authors, it is webcomic of puns, randomness, sarcasm and insanity. Most comics will involve some sort of wordplay, and often include other general nerd humour, such as references to computer programming or math. Recurring characters are mostly based on the comic's creators, known only as N/A and Rah.
— Mouse over, Punintended, "Choose"
Tropes used by this webcomic:
- All Love Is Unrequited: Or so it would seem in "The Language of Love", where the French guy seems unable to get the girl.
- Applied Mathematics: Pizza Pi pulls this off fantastically.
- Author Avatar: The two main characters in the comic are the authors N/A and Rah.
- Comedic Sociopathy: The comic "Stitches" fully illustrates this. "A sadistic sense of humour often leaves people in stitches."
- Cool Shades: N/A is shown to wear these when driving in "Garage". It is rather subverted, though, as they are pink.
- Incredibly Lame Pun: True frequently enough. But the authors are fully aware. N/A tends to mock Rah's particularly punny sense of humour in blog entries.
- Pluto Is Expendable: The French apparently decided this sooner.
- Stick Figure Comic: Or marshmallow figure comic, to be precise
- The Talk: Explained from the point of view of a biologist, a chemist and an astronomer in Where Do Babies Come From?.
